WINNSBORO, S. 0.
Saturday, February 17, ; 1877.

JNO. S. REYNOLDS, Associate Editor.
Two years ago we thought "Gov.
Chatthbeilin"-a necessity. He was
then ifi t'h front fighting the thieves.
As -eovernor 'Htfnpton has since
then, however, kindly undertaken
the little job of cleaning out the
State, we don't consider Mr. Cham
berlain a necessity any longer. In
deed, we expect to see Gov. Hamp~
ton clean him out, along with the
other trash, before very long.
The city council of Columbia has
brought upon itself the unqualified
condemnation of the taxpayers, by
first raising the salary of the mayor,
city attorney and other officials, and
then refusing to rescind this action.
The Register well says it is bad time
to raise salaries.
The Charleston Journal of Con.
nerce falls into the error of calling
Ma yor Agnew a result of a
compromiso policy. Mr. Agnew
was the regular nominee of the Ro
pul)licans ; while the taxpayers gen
orally, and many colored men, rallied
to the support of Capt. Stanley, and
the fight over the mayorality was
And now a new wonder has come
to light, or rather in light. Gen
Augustus Pleasanton has written a
book in which ho portrays at length
the medical properties of blue glass,
and tho effeet it has in promoting
the growth of plants, and alleviating
norvopw disorders in snan. Excite
ment is running high in Now York,
and the price of blue glass is en
hanced fifty por cent.
In thin South, coloro.l glass is not
needed to make the sun's rays and
everything look blue. We have
lived in ' cerulean atmosphere for
some time. This accounts for the
health of the country, if Gen. Pleas
anton is correct in his theory.
Until the political and financial coin
plicatios are settled down here,
there is no need for colored window
ne tteturning Board Rascals.
It scorns that the fato of the
nation is to depend upon the acts of
three returning boards, composed
of notorious corruptionists, and
notorious falsifiers. No unpreju
diced mind can fail to believe that
Tilden carried both Florida and
Louisiana, It was left for the
Electoral Commission to judge
whether the rethrning boards had
properly or imIproperly rejected
Tilden's votes. But the Commis
sion skulks, and the boards are
supreme. They are the Warwickis
who make and unmake kingas at
pleasure, who act solely according
to self interest and without a shadow
of responsibility -who sudcdenly
appear upon the surface of politics,
commit the fraudulent act, and slink
again into obscurity before the
outraged people, or offended justice
can mete out to them the slightest
This is the horrible machinery by
which the Radical party is to be
perp~etuatted, These are the men
who, year after year, are expected
to reverse the verdict of the
people. 'These are the men upon
whom the mwiftest and~ most condign
p~unishmnent' should fall. For these
are tho men who have brought uiponi
this country the feverish condition
of uncertainty and unrest, wvhich
has, time and again, threatened to
drench the soil in blood, and has
well-nigh wrecked aill the material
interests of the people. A fair
count in South 'Carolina,' Lonisiana
and Florida would have long since

crowned th i vilYainy wit an effort
to steal atat. In the general
denunciation of Iadicalismn, theso
villainb have have escaped scot-free,
while Chamberlain, Patterson, E. W.
M. Mackey, Corbin and the Radical
Senators have been compolled to
bear the brunt. Chamberlain, Pat
terson, Mackey and Grant himself
would have been powerlesE for evil
bitt for the flagrant crime of this
rascally returning board. Peace
would now spread her pinions over
the State, the hinges of government
would move smoothly, the material
interests would experience a revival,
the people would be happy and
contented, but for the atrocious act
of this canvassing board. No pun
ishment could be too severe for
them. In the general reckoning let
them be remembered. And let this
day of reckoning be joyfully antici
pated, chiefly because of the discom
fituro it will bring to these corrupt
patricides. Let them not be ignored,
lot them not slink into obscurity.
Thrust them to the front, and keep
thon over exposed to the public
scorn, until they are brought to ade
quato punishment. For they are
the arch-thieves and arch
traitors of the State.
THE1 r REVENUE PERSECUTION.--Van
Buren Hendricks was killed on
Monday night last, fifteen miles
above Greenville, S. C., on the Ashe
ville road, whilst attempting to
arrest Hubbard Garmany, an escaps
edl convict from the Greenville jail,
for illicit distillery. A reward of
twenty dollars had been offered by
Sheriff Gilreath for Garmany's
arrest, and it was to secure this
paltry sum of money that Hen.
dricks, who was not an officer of
justice, was working. When Hen
dricks shot at Garmany, which he
did twice, the latter had his child in
his arms. 'I'lhe people think the
killing justifiable under the circum
On the same day, Jackson Ward,
living in Glassy Mountain Township,
whilst walking in the highway, with
one of his children in his arms,
was shot at by a revenue officer
named Johnson, and the child killed.
Johnson is now in jail. Although
now a revenue officer, he was former
ly engaged in illicit distilling.
COL. HASKELL'S EVIDENCE -Before
the select committee considering the
President's message regarding the
use of troops in the South, A. C.
Haskeil, of South Carolina, testified
threatene disturbance in South
Carolina, before or after the late
election, calling for thointerposition
of troops. He saw Federal officers,
on guard in the Statehouse, inspect
ing the certificates of members of
the General Assembly. The officers
of the army took their instructions
from, and acted under the orders of,
0. A Jones, private secretary to
Chamberlain. The Legislature was
organized b~y United States 3ol
diers, in the interest of Chamberlain.
"Wlhch is the largest gland ?"
asked a Chicago medical professor
of the newest arrival in his class the
other day. The student buried him
self in deep and attentive thought
for a moment, and then brightening
up suddenly exclaimed :"The
largest gland, sir, is England." Then
the professor kindly led the young
man aside, and pathetically advised
him to think no more of medicine,
but join a minstrel show, or enter

borne himself as to gain the love

County. Nor can it be ascertained when
there will be. As the deficieneies which
have yearly accrued in unpaid certificates
have materially affected the welfare of the
educational system, we have decided
after mature deliberation not to
add to this embarrassment. It therefore
b..comes our duty reluctantly to notify
you to close r 11 public schools which
have been tlpened, until you receive
further notice from us. eVo recommend
the establishment of pay schools wherevet
practicable. So soon as any funds are
recived for the use of the schools they
